Like every year, Ali Zafar has just released an anthem for the latest installment of PSL. Zafar is back for the third time as the voice and soul of the Pakistan Super League. Titled Dil Se Jaan Laga De the video shows cricket players gearing up for the series.
It also features Ramiz Raja drumming to the song while Ahmed Shehzad tries his luck strumming a guitar. Other players featured in the video include Junaid Khan, Misbah ul Haq and Shahid Afridi getting ready for the pitch.
Zafar has also earlier composed the official anthem Ab Khel Kay Dikha for the PSL debut season and Ab Khel Jamay Ga for the second year of PSL, the latter of which has been seen and heard over 6 million times on YouTube alone.
“I cannot explain how humbling it was to hear it play from every car, home and in every street when the final came home to Pakistan. In fact, when I was writing it, I wrote the entire chorus based on the vision, hope and dream of cricket returning to Pakistan and we are very fortunate that it did! This year’s anthem takes that thought further and it is based on a celebration; that last year’s dream was fulfilled, that the PSL embraces the very essence of cricket and pride; that Pakistan and Pakistanis will take the Super League to the next level again this year,” said Zafar.
Dil Se Jaan Laga De has been composed, written, produced and sung by Zafar as well.
